Anyone knows if there will be any salary adjustments for teachers anytime soon? The last adjustment was in 2012.

Wow... I applied same window, and only got an e-mail saying still under consideration and must wait till 30 June. Then again, it could be a good thing, indicator that they haven't yet found what they're looking for even after interviewing for some time.

I think the selection tends to favour younger age applicants, as there's more potential for advancement and leadership roles in their future. I have teaching experience, and post-grad quals locally, so only age is the determining factor.

The thing that still attracts me to teaching in MOE school is the PGDE which is a recognised teaching qualification. And valuable even after leaving teaching service. Also the more "fixed" nature of the job and subject contents.

read a lot of horror stories about life as a teacher...is the work-life balance of teachers really THAT bad across the board?

i don't mind doing occasional OT or going back to school for CCA on the occasional weekend but if it's every day....I will think twice.

With all due respect,if you need to ask such questions,it is likely that you are not suitable for the teaching profession.

I agree fully - was thinking exactly that when I read his/her question!

Chinese teacher
 
Hi guys, need some kind advice here. I'm gonna study business in NBS next year but I'm actually interested to be a Chinese teacher, will MOE recognize my cert if I apply straight out of uni or am I better off just changing my course of study to something more relevant to Chinese? I understand that teaching Chinese may not be the best prospect/subject, but with maybe a first class honors in biz, will I be placed in the management teachers scheme or Smth along that line? Thanks!

shut up la. You think teachers don't have families to feed? There is absolutely nothing wrong in asking about pay revisions.

Stop putting teachers at such level where you all start thinking that teachers MUST and ONLY think about developing the future citizens. BS.
